unnecessary, we have a situation where john boehner, the speaker of the house puts a bill out on the floor, at current funding levels so we can then negotiate on a real budget that allows us to stop negotiating from crisis to crisis, it would pass. the only thing that is stopping it, is that john boehner right now has not been willing to say no to a faction of the republican party that are willing to burn the house down because of an obsession over my health care initiative. >> the president there is continuing to point out that while the shutdown is often described as a fight between democrats and republicans, it is just as much if not more so a fight between speaker john boehner and a fight between his own republican party. the idea of the tea party, any legislator being powerful in the traditional sense is kind of archaic, what boehner was before was an institutionalist, he was first elected to congress in 1990 and has been there ever since. he has risen through the ranks, climbed back, fallen again, and finally reached the top. when he got there, the problem is he is exactly the sort o
morning as they looked at the "washington post" and the printed version of "politico." john boehner and his are public colleagues find themselves on an island. they do have ted cruz. tolden center cruise speaker boehner to take up a crusade to defend obamacare, the speaker did it. >> senator chuck schumer of new york. last,isan agreement at neither can stand ted cruz. how does a freshman senator managed to become a poster boy so early in his career? >> it is a classic example. not the first example but maybe the best example of how politicians, when they have media, the ability to command media attention and activist it all.do not need they are contemptuous of the traditional levers of establishment power, staying in good stead with the leaders and staying in good stead with the washington crowd. it is worthless to him. he is using a model that sarah palin and others before him used but he is using it, i think, toh kind of more ability drive a policy debate that i have ever seen. we have seen these comets streak across the sky but we have never seen one exert that much clout on the
a 90-minute meeting with the top four leaders in congress. at that podium you saw john boehner. was there any kind of a breakthrough? 90-minute meeting after not talking for a week. we'll go live to the white house. plus one of the lawmaker who pushed for obama care to be included in the fight. rand paul is "outfront" to respond. and the story from the beginning, the violent confrontation between a motorist and a group of people caught on tape. >>> we have news at the top of the hour. president obama and congressional leaders just a moment ago literally, 90 seconds ago, wrapping up a 90-minute meeting at the white house. if the congressional leaders are about to talk about that meeting. john boehner was there a moment ago. i want to get straight -- mitch mcconnell, i believe, is speaking. he is getting into his suv. let me get straight to jim acosta who is at the white house. we saw john boehner speak. who else spoke? a 90-minute meeting. what happened? >> all we've seen so far, you caught me poking down the driveway for a few moments. all we've seen so far is house speaker joh
from john boehner. after 1:00, this is going to be awesome. have a great night. stay with us. >>> midnight came, and midnight went. congress did not keep the government runs. and still, amazingly, ironically, republicans did not stop obamacare. >> what a shameful day this is. >> the government of the united states of america will close. >> they're talking now about not raising the debt creeling. >> i'd like to say good evening, but it isn't a very good one. >> the president is the one who's driving the government shut down. >> the president's not willing to come to the table. >> he wants the checkbook. >> maybe he's not the problem. >> the president's not asking for anything. >> you've got to get a life. >> this is not a game of chicken. >> i sort of feel sorry for speaker boehner. >> the sheer ridiculousness. >> the republicans have left the plane of reason. >> tomorrow will be a bad day for government, a day of celebration in the house. >> government shut down watch. >> this one is a complete shutdown. >> the finale. >> as a result, you're about to shut down the government.
speaker john boehner ready to do at the 11th hour. >> senate decided not to work yesterday. >> boehner has handed the gavel over to cruz. >> harry reid has essentially told house of representatives and american people, go jump in a lake. >> how can you hold the entire federal government hostage? >> i don't think you hear responsible republican leaders advocating a shutdown. >> begging for america to fail. >> we are the party willing to compromise. >> that's like saying instead of chopping off both your arms, we'll chop off only one arm. >> i am at only open to but eager to negotiations. ♪ after midnight we're going to let it all hang down ♪ ♪ >>> good afternoon. we begin with the only question that's ringing around the corridor with the capitol this afternoon. is eight hours enough to stop a government shutdown? with the countdown clock ticking, the nation is bracing itself for what could be the first government shutdown in nearly two decades and the deal is struck before midnight. the senate in session all of 20 minutes today before they voted to reject a house bill that would delay
of washington, d.c. this morning, and he blamed house speaker john boehner for the government shutdown. >> obama: the only thing that is preventing all that from happening right now, today, in the next five minutes is that speaker john boehner won't even let the bill get a yes or no vote because he doesn't want to anger the extremists in his party. that's all. that's what this whole thing is about. >> we have complete coverage of the government shutdown. libby casey is on capitol hill. but we begin with mike viqueira at the white house, good afternoon, mike. so did the president say anything that we haven't heard already today? >> reporter: stephanie, i'm afraid we're still in the shouting stage and the two sides are talking past each other. notwithstanding the president was talking face to face with all four of the republicans and democrats in the house and senate. to call out speaker john boehner if that senate bill, the so-called clean cr with no strings attached it would pass. the problem about john boehner he would have to defy the base of his party was it would pass with democratic oh vote
from a 90-minute meeting with the top four leaders in congress. at that podium you saw john boehner. was there any kind of a breakthrough? 90-minute meeting after not talking for a week. we'll go live to the white house. plus one of the lawmaker who pushed for obama care to be included in the fight. rand paul is "outfront" to respond. and the story from the beginning, the violent confrontation between a motorist and a group of people caught on tape. >>> we have news at the top of saying at this point, the white house will not negotiate over this shutdown that is now into day two. obviously, house republicans would like to see some sort of concession on obama care. the president, if you listen to what john bain her to say right after this meeting, the white house is not offering that. what john boehner said, he still wants to have conferrees pointed. what does that mean? what house republican wos like to have the senate do is send members from the senate into a joint house senate conference to try to work out some sort of agreement. senate democrats have obviously balked at that. tha
see john boehner out there on the media skillet the less you see of ted cruz. this is a pathetic example of a politician who's never gotten a positive piece of legislation passed but spends his time sabotaging government.ent obama met with the congressional leaders of both parties at the white house. howard, let's talk about the setup before tonight. where are we with this speaker of the house? he's got the heat on his back. on his backside. let's be blunt here. he's facing a tremendous torture. you can see it in his face. how long will it take for the moderates in his party to give him enough backing where he can make a move and make a lesser demand on the president, one that he might be able to accept? >> well, chris, we're he an all counting, one by one, republicans are saying, privately first and then publicly, in the house, that they would be willing to vote for a so-called cr, meaning go ahead, fund the government without conditions. right now there may be 16 or 17 of those republicans. that would be enough -- >>> so that the leadership doesn't fail. >> let's look at this.
's interesting that the more this government shut down hurts and is seen hurting, the more you see john boehner out there on the media skillet the less you see of ted cruz. this is a pathetic example of a politician who's never gotten a positive piece of legislation passed but spends his time sabotaging government. john boehner stands out there on the bridge while this blows out. whose decision was it to put a senate hold on a meeting between the senate and house budget committees? that lack of appropriations bills passed and signed by the president exposed the entire u.s. government to shut down and who was it that demanded as a price for the passage of a continuing resolution the destruction of the affordable care act? ted cruz. the man who's now standing back and watching the government crash in. within the last hour, president obama met with the congressional leaders of both parties at the white house. howard, let's talk about the setup before tonight. where are we with this speaker of the house? he's got the heat on his back. on his backside. let's be blunt here. he's facing a tremendous t
's going to go. basically, probably it will go as long as john boehner thinks it needs to go until he can say eureka or look at the house conservatives and say i played all my moves. we did everything we could and thought the good fight. let's get the government up and running. >> i guess my fundamental question is this, john boehner didn't want to be in this position. he had -- the right wing of the party said you lay down on the ground in front of this truck and do it over this budget. don't wait for the debt ceiling. but if they end up caving and end up losing do they have the ability to fight over the debt ceiling or did they just completely lose altogether? >> i have to tell you that's a very astute question, erin that is part of the concern i had heard from house republicans they are using their arsenal for the debt ceiling on this bill which they didn't want to do. and at the end of the day they could hurt the republicans' hand when they negotiate on the debt ceiling -- [ speaking foreign language ] [ inaudible ] >> dana will be with us for the next 55 minutes. the president has re
there that you don't like. >> meanwhile john boehner the spreerk of the house, the leader of house republicans in a very tough spot. he's got his tea party republicans insisting that obamacare be delayed or defunded in some manner. he tried to ca cajole them two weeks ago, trying to put a bill on the floor without any notice or notion of the health care initiative at all. he was overruled by his tea party constituents. over the last several days in the halls of congress everybody agrees that the only way out for john boehner is he's going ohave to cave. he's not willing to do that. he's had it out with harry reid all day long. let's listen to that. >> so the bill before us is very simple. it funds the government and it says let's treat our constituents fairly. no more mandate for the next year that you have to buy insurance that you can't afford. no more mandate to members of congress get some more exemption. those are the only two issues here. all the senate has to do is say yes and the government's funded tomorrow. >> i keep trying to do the same thing over and over again. they have voted to
the exchanges. once again we heard john boehner harping on the theme. >> the american people are worried about their job, they are worried about their incomes rising, because they are all under pressure, the economy is not growing, why? one of the issues is obamacare. >> we have devolved into the name calling portion of the meeting today. harry reid called them banana republicans. here is what he had to say. >> and every step of the way, boehner knew what was going on. mcconnell knew what was going on pelosi knows what is going on, but it doesn't matter. we are not going to mess around with obamacare. they have got to get a life. >> so the question is when the senate rejects yet again what the house of representatives wants to do will .john boehner put on the floor a clean spending bill, with the help of house democrats. a huge problem for john boehner, but it would work for just about everybody else. >> mike viqueira where will we be at this time tomorrow? >> i think we may be sleeping one off. there is a chance for a deal here, which would require house republicans to cave. we have certainly
from the house speaker john boehner who's always interested to watch on capitol hill. after 1:00 a.m., this is going to be awesome. have a great night. stay with us. midnight came and went. congress didn't keep the government rye running and republicans did not stop obama care. >> what a shameful day this is. >> the government of the united states of america will close. >> they are talking now about not raising the debt ceiling. >> they will only talk after the government shuts down. >> i'd like to say good evening, but it isn't a very good one. >> the president is driving the government shut down. >> the president is not willing to come to the table. >> he wants the checkbook. >> maybe he's not the problem. >> the president's not asking for anything. >> they have to get a life. >> this is not a game of chicken. >> i feel sorry for speaker boehner. >> the sheer ridiculousness. >> insane. >> republicans have left the point of reason. >> republicans are stail still playing games. they don't believe in government and tomorrow will be a bad day for government. a day of celebration in t
it in the surrounding area. but he was really there to blast john boehner saying time and time again if he could just bring democrats into this process, then the bill would pass. there is some justification for that. i don't think there's any question that that is the case. but he blasted john boehner time and time again. >> the only thing that is preventing all of that from happening, right now, today, in the next five minutes is that speaker john boehner won't even let the bill get a yes or no vote because he doesn't want to anger the extremists in his party. that's all. that's what this whole thing is about. >> so where are we? >> we are nowhere? there is no glimmer of hope or outward signs of a change. the president brought though congressional leaders, including john boehner to tell them face-to-face what he has said from his podiums, he will not negotiate with a gun to his head. here is a little bit more. >> the longer this goes on, the worse it will be. and it makes no sense. the american people elected their representatives to make their lives easier, not harder, and there's one way out of th
with republicans over anything, but only after john boehner and his caucus let the government reopen and raise the country's debt ceiling. in other words, mr. speaker, release the hostages and then we'll talk. >> i want everybody to understand this. there are enough republicans and democrats in the house of representatives today that if the speaker of the house, john boehner, simply let the bill get on the floor for an up or down vote, every congressman could vote their conscious, the shutdown would end today. the only things that's preventing all that from happening right now today, in the next five minutes, is that speaker john boehner won't even let the bill get a yes or no vote because he doesn't want to anger the extremists in his party. >> meanwhile the gop finds itself more and more in a behind even if some republicans appear to be completely, giddily, unaware. >> we're very energized, very strong. this is about the happiest i've seen members in a long time because we see that we're starting to win this dialogue on a national level. >> well, tell that to john boehner who because he's st
bid to get re-elected. a lot of republicans including john boehner remember that, but there are plenty of them in congress who don't remember what happened then and are willing to fight this fight right now topher obama care. it's going to be a brutal fight. you know, there's other ways to fight this battle, but they're insisting on fighting it right now. i suspect though eventually, probably sooner rather than later, john boehner will find a way to get there be some sort of clean resolution without any springs attached that will allow the government to fund it and they can fight their battles over obama care elsewhere. >> live footage from the senate. i think that was chuck schumer i just saw speaking. let's see what's going on. >> but nothing we can do with this resolution. >> nothing we can doing >> until. >> they're over there now negotiating with themselves i guess. >> yeah. because isn't it true, leader, that until they vote for that resolution, the government will remain shut? >> that is absolutely. >> they can send us a hundred different little doo dads, gizmos and other things
in the past, and that at the end of the day the republicans will blink. john boehner does not want this on his sheet. what is extraordinary about this to the observer is how far these republican extremists are willing to go, just to bring the spotlight on them and to supposedly prove to the people who sent him to washington that they are there to do with they were elected to do, which is to stop obamacare, which is what they are doing. they are holding the budget and they are holding the debt ceiling hostage to try and get this law defunded. >> when he woke up tuesday morning, the whole world is ending, this is terrible. the first time in 17 years. the markets closed this friday -- are going to close slightly up. it seems as though wall street does not seem that worried. >> they are worried more about the debt ceiling not being raised on the 17. they are concerned about that. as time goes on and we get closer to october 17, if there is still this great gap between these two sides of the house and the senate, they will be very concerned. i think you will see what a bit of volatility. for right
. because big picture, john boehner and his republican leadership are still insisting they're not going to give in to what the democrats are demanding. and that is just a clean, no strings attached bill to fund the government even for six weeks. and they are at an amazing standoff. anderson, congress just has not functioned on personal relationships for a long time. i've never seen it this bad. even and especially between the principals, john boehner and harry reid in the senate but even their staff. there's just no trust. and there's no communication at all. >> and dana, i think i said you were on capitol hill. i think you're in our studio now. thankfully you've been allowed to move off capitol hill because i think you've been there for the last week or so. stick with us. tina, what do you make of this? >> maybe vladimir putin can point the logjam here. we need a mediator like him. it is incredible to me to watch these republicans putting on their suicide vesting and think is this is going to have some kind of outcome for america. it is absolutely preposterous. the most depressing to s
last night president obama spoke with congressional leaders including house speaker john boehner who responded by impersonating the president on the house floor. >> i talked to the president earlier tonight. i'm not going to negotiate. i'm not going to negotiate. i'm not going to do this. >> this morning the senate voted down the speaker's latest proposal, an 11th hour request, literally the request made at the 11th hour to resolve their differences in conference. according to congressman chris van hollen, it is a request that came after the house had a similar compromise roughly 18 times before. >> on 18 occasions, senator lee and other republican senators blocked the effort to go to budget negotiations. now, senator mccain said that was insane for republicans in senate to do because he pointed out our republican colleagues claim they want to work on the budget negotiations all along. why would you block that, mr. speaker? because when gow to a budget negotiation, you've got to compromise. you've got to meet the party halfway. you've got a tea party in the house that refuses to
, but he cannot negotiate with his own caucus. how does the president said down with john boehner and negotiate anything one whenever john boehner try to negotiate may not stick? charles said rightly if the republicans were smart, and i think i am quoting you correctly, if the republicans are smart they would pass a continuing resolution. what does that say about the house republicans? maybe they are not so smart because when john boehner came to them with the suggestion, let's ta our fight to the debt ceiling, they did not do it. they still want to fight over the closing of the permit and this budget over this continuing resolution. it is silly. >> there are a couple of things you could attack -- attached to a continuing resolution that the senate would approve -- the exemption of members of congress and their staff from obamacare. if you put that in the cr, it is impossible, particular for a democratic senator in a red state to vote against that because it looks and it is extremely unfair. another possible thing, and it is riskier, is to have a one- year delay in the individual
just heard moments ago from the speaker of the house john boehner. the speaker said all sides had a nice and polite conversation, but there was no deal. the speaker again asking for a conference committee between house and senate leaders to work out a compromise. >>> on wall street, stocks finished lower, the dow closed down 59 points. it had fallen nearly 150 points earlier in the day. the nasdaq and s&p were also down. >>> michael jackson's concert promoter was found not negligent in the case of the stars death. >>> at least eight people are dead after a bus crash on a tennessee highway. the crash happened about 20 miles northeast of knoxville. three vehicles were involved including a church bus. and those are the headlines at this hour. "real money with ali velshi" is next on al jazeera america. ♪ >>> shut out by the shut down. parents who depend on federal funding are feeling the pain. who's on track to be the world's biggest gin producer. it's not saudi arabia. >>> a case involving the "f" word but not one you're thinking of. i'm ali velshi. this is "real money." >> this is
. and we said we are, too. let's talk about it. my friend, john boehner, i repeat, cannot take yes for an answer. >> thank you mr. leader. on march 1, we saw many of you out here after we had a meeting in the oval office with president obama. at that time, speaker boehner and leader mcconnell wanted to proceed on the budget discussion under the regular order. a washington term, which means you pass a bill in the house, you pass a bill in the senate, you go to conference. all of that was march 1 before the end of the month. the hoys and the senate both passed a bill, but the republicans had resisted the regular order. for six months, they have avoided going to conference. so now they come up with their suggestion of 986 or 988. which is a figure that our members in the house do not like. thinking it is far too low and the republican chairman of the probations committee says it does not enable government to provide for the needs needs of the american people. having said that, over 100 members of the house, democrats stood on the steps of the capital today and made a solid real offe
-called rule is a self- imposed rule by republicans themselves, and john boehner is the one observing that rule. he ought not to do that, but he is in an awful position. he has week after week, day after day, ad nauseam, said that the president has to negotiate with us, but he cann negotiate with his own caucus. how does the president sit down with john boehner and negotiate anything when whenever john boehner tries to negiate may not stick? charles said rightly if the republicans were smart, and i think i am quoting you correctly, if the republicans are smart they would pass a continuing resolution. what does that say about the house republicans? maybe they are not so smart because when john boehner came to them with the suggestion, let's take our fight to the debt ceiling, they did not do it. they still want to fight over the closing of the government and this budget over this continuing resolution. it is silly. >> there are a couple of things you could attach to a continuing resolution that the senate would approve -- the exemption of members of congress and their staff from obamac

, to this potentially critical meeting between the president, john boehner, the other democratic and republican leaders in the house and senate. set the scene for us. what do we anticipate? >> reporter: well, wolf, we asked white house press secretary jay carney about this earlier today, why the president would sit down with congressional leaders when he and john boehner are so dug in. the white house is saying they want to get the discussions going but they're not really going to negotiate the budget until they get past this issue of the shutdown and past the issue of the debt ceiling. you heard the president say that in the interview with cnbc that aired in the last hour, the president saying he is exasperated with republicans, feels like he has bent over backwards to deal with the gop, an he reiterated during this interview that he is not going to negotiate over budget issues until the shutdown, the debt creeling is resolved. wolf, earlier today he met with wall street ceos here at the white house. those wall street ceos came out and offered their concerns about these two issues merging, the shutdow
, republicans led by john boehner are the only thing standing between congress and compromise. >> majorly leader made it clear he's not interested in talking either. he shot down just about every attempt to engage in serious discussions with the house or anyone else for that matter. >> collision course with the debt ceiling looming. can they breakthrough the budget battle before the fiscal cliff? and the closings are sparking protests and outrage. >> right now i'm terrified. i'm terrified. they had to live on what most of us work at and live on, they couldn't make it. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell in new york. it's day two of the government shutdown. so far party leaders are digging in their heels, but could they be about to break under the pressure? the president has called john boehner, nancy pelosi, mitch mcconnell and harry reid to the white house this afternoon. joining me mow for our daily fix, chris cillizza, and nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, first to you. what do you expect? are there any signs a all of negotiating or of beginning to budge on this, especially
it's about john boehner at this point. fascinating political moment, how does john boehner managed renegade who's have so far defeated him in his own caucus? is he will tok make peace with them? did z he think that he can do better and maintain power by turning his back on them? >> it is possible that this turns another way? that democrats and republicans overplayed their hand this time? >> this is an interesting question. they've been so confident all along. senate majority leader harry reid jammed john boehner didn't give him a face saving compromise like medical device tax repeal. nothing. he kept that senate shut sunday, he ran out the clock. i think they were surprised that he won't kind of work with boehner. what they're doing now is not managing the rest of conservatives they're trying to manage the plan for surrender with, in mind this huge, more important deadline just week as way. >> so you think that is where this is heading. i think it's earlly to call it a surrender this, is where it's heading for a long time, republicans settle ond what i think are the two most effect
leader harry reid is trying to place the game in the lap of john boehner. >> the fate of our country and our economy now rests with john boehner. tonight, we will see whether the speaker is really willing to shut down the government risking act on recovery. to extract concessions. i hope he makes a responsible decision. i doubt that he will. but i hope he does. and help avert a government shutdown. >> unlike many previous showdowns here on capitol hill, there are typically small groups that are working on trying to find common ground, trying to come up with a solution. what's been striking this time around is they seem to be talking over one another to the american people and not really talking to each other about working this out. jon? >> and, of course, republicans have a different idea about who is to blame, right? >> no question about that they say their constituents do not like obama care. this is the last chance to stop or delay obama care. in a key senate conservative, who has been quite vocal and quite visible in this whole standoff placed the blame elsewhere. >> if majority
called the shutdown entirely unnecessary. and he descreebd himself as exasperated. >> if john boehner, the speaker of the house, puts a bill on the floor to reopen the government at current funding levels, so that we can then negotiate onÑia real budget that allows us to stop governing from crisis to crisis, it would pass. the only thing that is stopping it is john boehner right now has not been willing to say no to a faction of the republican party that are willing to burn the house down because of an obsession over my health care initiative. >> reporter: scott, the president also warned that if republicans are unwilling to raise the nation's borrowing level when it runs out in about two weeks and then default on u.s. government obligations, then, in his words, we are in trouble. >> pelley: senior white house correspondent bill plante at the white house for us tonight. thanks, bill. the shutdown, as you know, is the result of republican attempts to roll back obamacare, but house republicans appeared to be having second thoughts today and they began passing bills to fund parts of the
